Gardening in West Texas-From the Dust comes New Life!

Last week was crushing with the loss of most of my plants to the weather. Slowly this week has just brought a smile to my face! While I know here in West Texas I will struggle all year with this garden I have found just a little hope.
I brought these containers in after the plants died! Look what popped up! And he is GREEN!


A little bell pepper Awwww FINALLY!

One is the loneliest number! lol But he is alive and growing!

My new blackberry bush!

I didn't think a single cucumber survived! Till he popped through the dust.

My new blueberry :)

This little tomato is trying so hard!

Unhappy sunflowers :( but they are trying to make it!
As you can see it has been a busy busy week! Today is opening day which means only one this here in West Texas.....the start of STORM SEASON! A whole other issue is ready to hit us.lol

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
